Meet Dr. Kelly Guthrie, DMD – Key West General Dentist
Dr. Guthrie graduated from the University of Alabama at Huntsville with a B.S. in biology and obtained her D.M.D. degree in 1996 from the UAB School of Dentistry. In addition, she completed an Advanced General Dentistry Residency at NOVA Southeastern University College of Dental Medicine in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. She is thrilled to be here in Key West.
With over 23 years in the dental field, Dr. Guthrie provides a full range of restorative and cosmetic dental services, from routine preventative dental hygiene, smile assessments, fillings and whitening to extractions, dentures and partials, veneers, crowns and bridges, implant restorations and full mouth rehabilitation.
In addition to these services, Dr. Guthrie has the designation of “Qualified Dentist” through the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine, which allows her to provide oral appliance therapy to treat sleep-disordered breathing, including snoring and mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea that is diagnosed by a board-certified sleep medicine physician.
“Dentistry is my passion, and it has given me a purpose in my life,” Dr. Guthrie said. “Improving someone’s smile and seeing a transformation in the patient’s confidence and well being is so rewarding to me. I firmly believe that by educating patients about their dental needs and treatment options, they are better able to make their own informed decision. This shared decision making process creates a dentist-patient relationship based on mutual trust. It is my privilege to provide compassionate support and the highest quality dental care to the residents of Key West and the surrounding areas for many years to come.“
